Payment Links

Introduction#

Payment Links are securely generated web addresses that allow your customers to make payments using the supported payment methods. Payment Links can be sent via SMS or email.

How it works#

Payment Links can be created from the Dashboard or via API. You can preset details such as amount, link expiry time, etc., and send it across to the customer via email or SMS. The customer can choose from the payment modes and complete payment accordingly. On payment completion, you will receive the amount in your bank account based on your settlement cycle. You can also enable webhooks to receive notifications about the payment as they get completed.
